Tayvallich (Scottish Gaelic: Taigh a' Bhealaich), pronounced "Tay-vee-al-ich", is a small village in the Knapdale area of Argyll and Bute, in Scotland. The village name has its origins in Gaelic, and means the "house of the pass".[1] The village is built around a sheltered harbour on Loch Sween. It has a primary school, small caravan park, pub and village store. The local economy is based on tourism and fishing. There is also a local bus service that takes the older children to nearby Lochgilphead where the nearest high school is situated. Tayvallich has become a major sailing centre.
